Sermons about Children
Paul addresses the three main of arenas of our lives, church, family and the marketplace. He points out that our speech and actions in each of these diverse area are to be guided, directed and pleasing to Christ. Rather than the cultural view that what happens in our personal life is not relevant to ones public life Paul says that how we acts and communicate in all these areas matters. He gives guidance for wives, husbands, children, parents, slaves (workers in our modern context) and masters (bosses).
Often times we suffer what I would term Spiritual Amnesia; It is those moments that we lose our minds and forget the glory that is the God that we serve. When we look at the life of believers we often times see defeated people who do not look like the God that they praise on Sunday. We often times suffer from a disconnect from our Sunday victoriousselves and through the rest of the week we seem defeated and disconnected from the power of Jesus. It is because we suffer from spiritual amnesia. And Amnesia prevents us from knowing who we are and whos we are. We forget that we are the Children of the most high God.
A mother's role is to nurture and strengthen her children while in her care, with the aim of preparing them to grow up to "breathe on their own." The goal is that our children might have the love, nurturing, discipline and teaching in the home and so be brought up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
As parents, it is important that we raise our children on strong biblical principles from God's Word. We need godly parents, dads and moms, teaching their children in the ways of the Lord. Their are three things that godly mothers need to pass on to their children: a genuine faith, a living faith, and a lasting faith.
How far are you wiling to go to protect your home? The power of the home is an amazing influence. To be an effective home, as parents, we need to unconditional love our children, we need to constructive discipline our children, we need to spend time together, we need to provide a Christian model, and we need to give our children a foundation for the future.
It is no accident that Abundant Life Church (and many other churches as well) are being inundated with little ones. This message reminds us of the value of the next generation and the important role they will play in the future as well as the huge responsibility of stewardship we have in them.
